Let's Be Positive

You don't develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.~Epicurus
When things are their hardest, you really need people around you that are of high quality. Positive, honest, and genuinely caring relationships make life so much easier. Forging relationships with even just one person that sees the positive and virtuous elements in life will lift your spirits and change your perspective on life, your outlook, and your demeanor. I count myself fortunate to know several positive, virtuous people. And to be honest, I’m glad they are in my life for the simple fact that they help me to see things clearly. It is especially true when life and the negativity that sometimes clings to it seem to attack you.
There’s an old saying that goes something like “you know your real friends when things go wrong”, and that’s really true. Those that stick around and help you out when you are feeling low…

The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved.

Today our famous quote comes from Mother Teresa

Loneliness is a terrible thing to endure.  Fortunately, you don't have to do it.  Get out there and meet new people, talk to the neighbor, say hi to the guy at the register. Cultivating friendships and relationships can be difficult, but if you invest time into getting to know quality people, it is Totally worth it! The first time you put yourself out there is the hardest, I know and understand.  It does get easier, just keep trying!
